Semsom combines Lebanese traditional and modern cuisine through its classic dishes and its signature creations. The menu reflects our determination to revive old recipes, pillars of Lebanon᾿s culinary heritage, as well as revisited recipes. Our continuous efforts to look for the freshest ingredients, and the creativity offered by our guests and team, gave to Semsom experience its unique identity.


Semsom was founded in 2008 by Christine Sfeir, one of Forbes' Top 100 Most Powerful Arab Women. After touring and sourcing local villages around Lebanon, hunting for new takes on old recipes, our team accumulated more than 1,500 recipes -- most directly from our guests!

Semsom created healthy and delicious Lebanese dishes with a modern twist. Made from fresh ingredients and innovative pairings like hummus and sumac, orange blossom water and osmalieh vermicelli, Semsom is perfect for every day. By 2011, the first Semsom franchise opened in Jeddah and later that year Semsom was named the fastest growing company in Lebanon.

Semsom is spreading the Lebanese way of life all over the Middle East & beyond. After Beirut, Jeddah, Kuwait, Muscat, Semsom will be present soon in Riyadh and Dubai. In 2015 Semsom started its global expansion with its first outlet opening in New York.
